A fine letter. Thank you.
I think it should be a little bit about gun control, too. Gun control would be a
reasonable response to your plea.
This letter is absolutely correct. Left-wing policies fostered by the current
administration have led to a society that is permeated by darkness and evil. We
cannot close our eyes to this irrefutable fact.Leftist judges have
subverted the Constitution in ruling that the law cannot regulate violence and
sexual content in video games. Thus,we have an increasingly violent population
of young men who massacre innocent children in the schools. This is an
inevitable result of raising young men in a culture of violence.For
the good of the children and all of society, we must choose leaders who reject
leftist policies that foster violence. Instead, we must have leaders who promote
the historically proven institutions of marriage and family.
This letter is exactly accurate. Left wing secular progressives and moral
relativist ideology has lead us to this. After all, if you believe evil is
subjective, who are you and I to judge what is good or evil? If there is no
right or wrong, its all about ME and there is no God to whom we are ultimately
accountable and there are no eternal consequences for our actions then what will
stop these sick people from murdering others! The police can't, gun control
laws can not protect you, and we can't stop them! This ideology has
infested the highest offices in the land and we will have more of these
senseless acts of violence. America will not change for the better until
Americans change for the better!
Leftist policies that foster violence?Please list them.
@ One old man: Pol Pot, Mao ste Tung, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler just to name a
few recent secular progressive moral relativists.
Mountainman, you just proved to everyone that you have no idea what the term
"secular progressive moral relativist" means.Every one of
the people you name were really conservatives trying desperately to hold on to
old ways or personal power.Just because someone made a claim like
that on hate radio doesn't make it true.
One old man. Conservatives? Everyone of them was big government dictators,
"you'll take my guns from my cold dead hands!" See,
conservatives are very peaceful people. After they are gone anyway.Mountainman it's the conservatives that so willingly give powers to the
government. You let them torture, spy on american and created the ATA under
Bush. Liberal demanded the halt to torture, domestic spying and
return of habeus corpus.But I know you are in denial that Bush ever
Yes, Screwdriver because it was the intelligence obtained with enhanced
interrogation (you call it torture) that lead those Navy Seals to Osama Bin
Laden! But Obama took all the credit, didn't he?
Bottom line. Gun control will do nothing to enhance our safety. There are
millions of law abiding gun owners, and yes, alot of them own so called assault
rifles, me included. The evil, and it was evil, perpetrated by the shooter at
Sandy Hook was not the fault of any legal gun owner. Or my 30 round magazine
that I have. I'm never going to use my guns for nefarious purposes. And I
don't know any other gun owner that will use their guns for nefarious
purposes. And they are locked up in a gun safe to which only myself and my wife
have the combination. No key.According to news reports, the mom had
her guns locked up. Apparently shooter knew where the key was.BTW
Mr. One Old Man, the leftist policies that foster violence are to numerous to
mention. I just plain don't have enough space.
Mountan Man, it wasn't the conservatives that yelled in the NRA news
conference, "Kill the NRA." That sounds real peaceful coming from an
apparent Liberal/Progressive. Conservatives usually don't threaten
anyone's life, but I've heard many liberals say that in the past. I
haven't heard one conservative say that the current president should be
killed, but I've heard many liberals say that the prior president should be
If you want to avoid seeing the face of evil, you might want to avoid watching
NRA TV press conferences. Mountanmain, you really need a good course in
political history. Your undertanding of 20th century politics sounds like it
came from Beck. It might help if you come to undertand the somewhat fluid
historical perspective of the terms "left" and "Right".
Flashback. There is more than one kind of evil. There is individual evil like
the shooters at Columbine, in Arizona, in Colorado, and at Sandy Hook. These
are sins of "commission". Then there are sins of "omission".
You ignore the fact that we all have a collective responsibility to "provide
for the peaace and tranquility" for our nation. There are all kinds of laws
and institution to accomplish that. We can coollectively fail just as surely as
we can individually fail. And, in my opinion, those that oppose reasonable
measure to keep deadly weapons out of the wrong hands, are as just guilty as the
I suggest to all go to the middle moderate of the political spectrum with a dose
of Libertarianism (I'll let you decide for yourselves which does) is
probably the correct course of action. Extreme politics, left or right,
isn't going to do much to solve anything. We need to lay the sword down
(pardon the pun) and start talking with each other in more controlled tones to
understand (to borrow that from Covey). Good letter BTW.
